Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.

|2 days 16 hours ago||Exactly||
And id add..we've had these plays. Butt screen...Chesson jet sweeps...Smith's rumbling TD...etc
|2 days 16 hours ago||Also...complacency?||
What complacency? They haven't won shit yet. The team knows this. I highly doubt they become complacent because a bunch of writers think they might be good enough to play in championship games this year. They don't care about that. They care that they've beaten OSU and MSU once each in the last ten or so attempts.
|2 days 16 hours ago||True...||
But you know what? It's felt like everyone has tried to tear Michigan down any opportunity they got over last decade. I'll take the positive press for once, even if the "can they win the Big Ten?" Talk feels premature to us fans who have lived through the last 7 years of incompetence and are weary about such early season projections.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Yeah...||
I mean, at some point you have to actually win something to even HAVE a bandwagon. Then we can really talk about those who jump off the bandwagon. What do the Lions have? I mean, woo how they made the playoffs that one time. I had a foot on the bandwagon....then Drew Bree's scorched them and I took my foot off.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Deserve?||
Quite frankly I don't know why a fumbled ball in the Endzone is automatically a touchback if it goes out of bounds, and the other team gets it. Actually it's kind of arbitrary...had the ball gone out of bounds at the half yard line, the Lions retain possession, but in the endzone they do not. It's completely arbitrary when you think about it. Why should the other team just get the ball back without a clear fumble recovery? Just spot the ball where the fumble occurred, and play on. So "deserves" does not enter into the equation at all.
|3 days 16 hours ago||You also forgot||
The part where Seahawks player intentionally knocks it out the back of the Endzone, which is a penalty that would have given the Lions the ball on the 1 with 1st and goal. But naturally the ref didn't think that was flag-worthy. So really, this loss has it all, right on down to being jobbed by the refs and an obscure rule.
|4 days 14 hours ago||I think he's gotten better at turnovers||
Yeah I know he had two on Saturday...he's got to do better holding onto the ball when he gets sacked (though that was a 4th down play so the impact was minimal). And I'm sure he wants to take back that across-the-body dangerous throw that led to the INT, even though it wasn't directly his fault that Houma bobbled the ball to an opposing defender.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Especially||
Since it happened on what looked like a ho hum play. Thought oh maybe he just rolled his ankle...nope. Major bummer.
|5 days 23 hours ago||I would say||
How bad Texas is. TCU barely beat Texas a Tech a week ago. Texas should have at the very least given TCU a game, even if they still lost by double digits.
|6 days 8 hours ago||Some of it has to be Chesson.||
He has had opportunities but has yet to show any ability to catch a ball downfield. At least one of his attempts he got a hand on it and I'd argue should have been caught.
|6 days 11 hours ago||Fucking refs||
Invalid fair catch signal my ass.
|6 days 11 hours ago||Guess we shouldn't be surprised||
This team still has quite a bit of Brady Hoke in them. Especially on the road.
|6 days 11 hours ago||Rudock doing his best Denard impression||
Nice. (Denard would have scored of course lol)
|6 days 11 hours ago||Congrats||
You won the challenge and got 2 1-2 yards. Can we just play football now?
|6 days 11 hours ago||Oh hi BTN2Go||
Nice of you to show me the fucking game finally.
|6 days 11 hours ago||Ok seriously BTN||
What the fuck.
|6 days 23 hours ago||BYU||
BYU is completely dominating the stat sheet. Problem is they cant get out of their own way...poorly timed penalties, bad turnovers, missed field goals, dropped TD passes.
|1 week 14 hours ago||That's not true!||
They got to see Denver play last Monday.
|1 week 1 day ago||This||
The BTN is not dumb...Michigan games are its cash cow. It will be on TV, people. Relax.
|1 week 2 days ago||Now that I think about it...||
They should have included the play that got them over 100 yards for the game. And then flashed "OVER 100 YARDS!" On the screen. Clearly that was the highlight of the game for them on offense.
|1 week 2 days ago||He would have held a town hall||
And sent LochDawg to run it. And THEN completely ignore all student input.
|1 week 2 days ago||...||
....Well, they did technically shut out Michigan for a half. So there's that. I guess.
|1 week 3 days ago||What a difference a year makes.||
The season was totally and utterly over after that demoralizing Minnesota game and Morris debacle. I'm one of those who cling on till the last moment before jumping ship on a coach or team, and yet 5 games into the season it was totally clear Hoke was a dead man walking...conversations were had about what he needed to do to keep his job, but the odds of that were always extremely low given how the first 5 games played out. The rest of the season was sleepwalking. Losses were just shrugs. Wins were sludgefart wins. It was sad. The Michigan season was objectively DONE after one single conference game.
|1 week 4 days ago||They're not targeting him anymore!||
CJ actually bailed Stafford out many times. But...Stafford isn't getting him the ball nearly enough. What happened to "throw it up in the general vicinity of CJ and see if he can catch it"? Remember when Stafford's problem was throwin it to CJ too much? That's been the Lions best play the last few years...and right now CJ is being severely underutilized, all in the name of "respect the run".
|1 week 4 days ago||The Lions are so fucking dumb||
How the dick do you let a guy behind you on 4th and 1 with 13 seconds left in a half? I get that you want to defend the first down and prevent a FG attempt, but a TD is absolutely unacceptable in that situation. Take away that TD and the Lions had a real chance to win.
|1 week 4 days ago||Not to mention||
They had a complete lack of urgency until it was too late. And even then they got to the redzone and somehow only targeted the Endzone once (the commentators were openly mocking them too...hey guys, you're down by 12 and there's a minute left, if you're trying to score you need to stop dinking it 5 yards every pass!)
|1 week 5 days ago||Who the hell calls plays for the Lions?||
This offense lacks imagination. Oh hey I have an idea! Let's run the ball on 1st down again! Yeah, respect the run. Or something. OH hey, it gained 1 yard. WOO! Let's run again! Minus two yards. 3rd and long...well I suppose it's time to pass now, eh?
Borges would be proud.
|1 week 5 days ago||Ah, ok.||
Well that would explain things, wouldn't it? Why do they even bother with the coaches poll anyway?
|1 week 5 days ago||Also dumb.||
Arizona, after a humiliating loss at home against UCLA, still received almost as many votes as Michigan did.
|1 week 5 days ago||Wow.||
Why in the flying fuck is Oregon still ranked?
